If the Union is once severed, the line of separation will grow wider and wider, and the controversies which are now debated and settled in the halls of legislation will then be tried in fields of battle and determined by the sword.
We just need to devise a bomb-proof screening chamber. Inside this chamber, short duration emf pulses are emitted that will detonate any explosive device. That way, only the terrorist gets blown up.

Lack of preparation on your part does not necessarily constitute an emergency on mine
Honestly, I think we have had enough of this crap. Just stop flying to these places and bringing these problems into our country. I remember my grandparents talking about coming to this country and how hard it was to get here.
Now its like Motel 6 Dont worry well leave the light on for ya!

As for the surgically implanted bombs, I'll believe when I see it.
The honest truth is that if somebody wants to take out a random group of people and doesn't care if they lose their life in the process, you're going to play hell trying to stop them.
this is crazy -- will see how this shapes up..
Somebody at TSA has been watching "The Dark Knight" wayyyyyyy too much!

We instituted the Department of Homeland Security (running up the deficit), infringed on the rights of law abiding citizens, made airline travel a nightmare, and have actually caught and successfully convicted very few terrorists in the process. But, hey...we're one of the two nations with any sense at all.
Want to hear something even scarier and possibly easier? Dry ice.
We ship bodies through cargo frequently, and at times they are in a hermetically sealed container called a Zeigler Case. Under 20 lbs of dry ice is safe, but what if a terrorist was able to pack say 50 lbs in one with a body (they would have to be shipping through a registered funeral home with a particular airline)? You've all seen dry ice in a two liter bottle. These cases are all metal and they do seal completely.
THAT is scary.
There's nothing like a funeral to make you feel alive
